UK's leading retailer has launched its exclusive store in the city of Ahmedabad. Spread over a generous space of 14,000 sq feet, the store spreads over 2 floors at Dev Arcade Mall on S.G Road. With this new store, Marks & Spencer successfully establishes its 15th store in India.

Marks & Spencer is known for its international quality and value for money product range. The new store's product offering includes Men's wear, Women's wear, Kids' wear, Home Décor, Lingerie and Beauty Products.

Mark Ashman, CEO Marks & Spencer India, in an official communiqué said - “We are happy to bring the M&S brand to Ahmedabad as we grow our presence in the Indian market. With a significant business community in Gujarat that has been exposed to Marks & Spencer through travel overseas for business or pleasure, there have been numerous queries about when we will open our 1st store in this market. With every new store we reaffirm our commitment to bring nothing but the best to the quality-conscious Indian."

The women's wear range has something for everyone, from formal smart wear, casual wear and winter wear for women of all ages. The store especially offers an extensive line of lingerie that includes shapewear, sleepwear, everyday bras, knickers vests and collection bras.

The Men's line offers formal wear from the exclusive Autograph Collection, the casual range from Blue Harbour and selected accessories to match. Kids from every age group too have something for them in the store, starting from a line of clothing for new-born babies all the way to Older Boys and Girls. Marks & Spencer has also recently launched the Home Décor collection in India – it showcases an impressive and colourful line of classy Glassware, Kitchen ware, Bath and Home linen accessories.
